Pre-packaged snack foods are probably what I struggle with the most. When I’m hungry. I’M HUNGRY. Which means give me a snack now. I don’t want to wait to make anything, so it’s best to have something ready to go like these Healthy Chocolate Almond Butter Truffles.
I have been on a bit of a protein ball kick, making my Peanut Chocolate Protein Bites and then my Coconut Almond Protein Balls. I’ve been making a batch of something every few days as soon as we run out. Craig and Cullen like these too, which is always win!
I like that these only contain 5 ingredients, and they are incredibly easy to make. Full of protein and good fats, they will help hold you over to your next meal and satisfy that afternoon sweet tooth. You’ll want to roll them into truffles as soon as you mix them up, otherwise I’ve found they dry out, and then I’ve had a hard time getting them to stick together.
